FDC Young Designer Award Show in New York City

New York never disappoints. I do not know what it is about this city that fascinates people, myself included. There is no amazing architecture; the weather leaves much to be desired, unless you visit in late spring or early fall. I think New York has this special energy of possibilities, creativity, and innovation that grabs and enchants the locals and visitors alike.  There are lots of interesting people in this city. Every day you meet some characters and people watching is a special treat here. 

 Springtime has got to be my favorite time of year in New York. As the weather gets warm, New Yorkers swarm outside and flood local parks, squares, and cafes. Tulips, daffodils, apple trees, some unknown to me trees are in full bloom, and the smell is so sweet that it makes your head spin.

This time I came to NYC to represent Vova Fruck fashion brand (www.vovafruck.com) in the fashion show organized by Fashion Designers and Craft Makers Network. It was a charity event and all the proceeds went to support people with Angelman’s syndrome (AS). AS is a rare and severe neurological disease characterized by intellectual and developmental disability.

Unfortunately, the designer himself – Vladimir - could not join me, and I was to represent his creations by myself. This was my first time taking part in an event like this and naturally I was a bit nervous, but very exited at the same time. I was to be part of the glamorous world of fashion in the fashion capitol of the world – New York City!  

It was an amazing experience. Everyone was very nice, friendly and very helpful. I got to meet a lot of talented and creative people: designers, photographers, and models. One of the designers was only 15 years old, but the look she created was very grown—up and sophisticated. Everyone genuinely admired Vladimir’s work. The public response was very positive too. That day I came home tired but very happy and very inspired.

I had a great time and I want to thank Joanna Marcella for doing what she is doing. She is helping young and emerging designers to show their work to the world and all of that while supporting a great cause. Joanna, thank you for inviting Vova Fruck to be part of this wonderful event.

This is a showcase for emerging designers and the first fashion show for us to participate outside of Russia. We are super excited and a little scared, of course.

The showcase is organized by Fashion Designers and Craft makers Young Designer Awards - FDC. FDC’s vision is to present an international platform for dynamic young fashion designers who can find their niche as individuals and become a brand in their own right.

At the same time FDC raises awareness for the Angelman Syndrom and will be donating the proceeds from the show to The Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST).

Angelman Syndrome (often abbreviated AS) is a severe neurological disorder characterized by profound developmental delays, problems with motor coordination (ataxia) and balance, and epilepsy. AS affects all races and both genders equally.

Here is a little preview of our special collection for the show. Hint - it's all about the colors.
